A good start to the day, breakfast with a large cup of hot coffee, outside at The Lookout. There’s a good selection to choose from and they all look appetising. Excellent view over the bay to Portland.

While serving up cakes coffee and Dorset tea most of the time, the Lookout Cafe also serves tasty local fish and chips, fresh crab sandwiches, and salads of all types. Well worth eating there just for the view over Weymouth and Portland.
